Tom Cruise's recent Oprah Winfrey interview included several new revelations – like admitting that he regrets his infamous argument with Matt Lauer.

Unfortunately, the Today show host tells PEOPLE, he didn't get to watch Winfrey's two-hour Cruise-a-palooza.

"I was traveling," he said on his way into a N.Y.C. dinner celebrating Time magazine's Most Influential People in the World issue on Thursday night. "I didn't see the interview. Somebody told me a little bit."

Lauer – who sparred with Cruise in 2005 over Scientology's stance against psychiatric medication – says it's all water under the bridge. "I don't feel there are any hard feelings," he says. "It was an interview. It was a good moment on television."

In fact, Lauer said he would welcome the chance to interview the Mission: Impossible star again. "The doors are open," he added. "I hope he comes back and sees me real soon."
